It's unlikely that anyone here will question the value of open-source software, but how do you build a business around it? Drawing on the successes and failures of SilverStripe, and a few stories from other companies, Sam will discuss different ways in which you can build a successful business that has open-source software as its core IP. There are no hard & fast rules – open-source business models are still ripe for innovation – but Sam will leave you with a few principles and a few ideas to get your thinking started.
